Why this course?

Heartwiring and Hardwiring Your Leadership,TM  unlocks the secret to effective leadership. You’ll learn to transform your own style to bring out the best leader in you, so you can bring out the best results in others.

Heartwiring is about building passionate commitment in others. Hardwiring is applying process and discipline to things that matter most, to drive consistent results. It is the combination of the two that leads to exceptional performance.

The program starts with a half-day workshop in October that kicks off with David Novak. Then a cohort of participants will have access to his signature 90-day online leadership program, oGoLead™. The fully-integrated experience consists of five interactive learning modules. Each module teaches practical leadership skills you can apply immediately. You’ll also receive a digital version of David’s book, O Great One: A little story about the awesome power of recognition.

This learning experience is based on practical theory and proven results, taught by the CEOs and leaders that made it happen in over 100 countries around the world. It utilizes a learn, practice, reflect model over multiple weeks to ensure the concepts stick. There will be two optional half-day classroom sessions on December 14, 2018 and February 1, 2019.
